Oliver Hailey & The Writers Workshop

Published by Dramatists Play Service

This first half of 24 HOURS AM consists of twelve short plays covering the hours of one am to twelve noon

Ranging widely in mood and style, from zany humor to touching sentiment to near tragedy, the plays cover the gamut of human emotions as well as the times of the day

Neatly dovetailed, the program moves along with exceptional swiftness and in covering so many facets of the human condition, provides an unique theatrical experience which, without question, offers something for everyone

This is the first half of an integrated program of 24 short plays

Conceived by playwright Oliver Hailey as a project for the writers workshop which he established in Los Angeles, 24 HOURS (AM & PM) developed from a request that each workshop member write a short five to ten minute play dealing with events at a particular hour of the day or night

The result was a program of great variety and wide-range imaginativeness, which went on to critical and popular success in its production by the Back Alley Theatre

" it's thrilling to see that high quality entertainment can be produced in concentrated form" ~ L.A. Herald Examiner

"The variety displayed here is tremendous. From birth to death and every thing in between, these writers have it covered" ~ Data-Boy Magazine

"What is encouraging is the refreshing and seemingly unlimited inventiveness displayed" ~ LA Times
